Just for you

Hi there!

It's been a while since my last blog post ... 18 days ago ! The reason is partly a loss of mojo and just this time of the year!

It's such a weird feeling to sit at my craft room desk, with all the intentions to create something amazing ...  and everything turns blank. Even when an idea comes to mind but the end result just doesn't look like anything you can share... ugh 😝.

Then I sat down yesterday... and I made a card that I actually like!


A closer look:

... and the supplies I used:

  • Painted poppy Stampset from Altenew
  • Label love stampset from Altenew
  • Versamark ink
  • Gold embossing powder (Stamperia)
  • Zig markers
  • Watercolor paper
  • Rhinestones
  • Misti

I made multiple cards for every single Altenew challenge during 2017, except for October, when I was on a blogging break... so it was an easy choice to make when I decided to join the Altenew year in review inspiration challenge !

I was inspired by the beautiful colors in the inspiration photo, and I also used the same composition/layout just with different flowers.

Because it's the first time I inked up this beautiful & new (to me)  set, I am also sharing it at Simon says stamp Work it Wednesday (December).

Thanks for visiting me today!

I find it hard too when I haven't crafted for a bit. Try to stamp bits and pieces when I'm really in the mood to create and then when I've lost my mojo it helps it come back faster. I absolutely love how delicate and feminine this card is Hannalie!

I know the feeling, but this did, indeed, turn out beautiful. Pretty and delicate. More and more I'm finding I love the simplest cards the best. You're quite an inspiration. Happy new year, Hannelie!

It looks like you found your mojo again! This is gorgeous!
Every time I take a break from creating I feel that way and it takes a while to get going again!
